10 TIPS TO HELP YOU SELL YOUR HOUSE FOR TOP DOLLAR

Introduction

In this series of short videos, I have put together ten tips to help you get your Big Bay Property, Atlantic Beach Real Estate and Property in Melkbosstrand sold fast and for top Dollar.

Because your home is probably your largest asset, selling it is going to be the most important decision you make in your entire life.

So through these ten tips that I have gathered through current industry insider reports, I am going to show your how to reduce your stress, stay in control of your situation and, most importantly, make the most profit possible.

Tip #8: Turning A Low Offer Around

Firstly, make sure all your offers are reduced to writing and are on a comprehensive Offer To Purchase document.

You can counter a low offer or, even an offer that is way below your asking price, but remember, at this point, you are giving the buyer an offer. It is a counter-offer and he can, and may, walk away from it.

At this point, it might be wise to throw in those curtains, those flower pots or that water feature that the buyer loved so much.

Now you will be dealing and negotiating with serious buyers.

Tip #9: Why An Exclusive Mandate?

Well, firstly to avoid double commissions.

Let us say that Agent A brings Mr Jones through your Atlantic Beach, Melkbosstrand or Big Bay property and then a while later, Agent B brings Mrs Jones through your property.

They both have a claim for commission.

Your property also becomes top priority. A good agent can only handle so many properties and, obviously, sole mandates get top priority.

You need time to secure the highest price possible. You will not be pressurised into signing that Offer To Purchase simply because the agent feels he might get pipped at the post by his competition.

In fact, a sole agent will create competition amongst buyers to try and achieve that higher price for your Melkbosstrand, Atlantic Beach or Big Bay property.

Control: one price is cited, viewing times are set, advertising is consistent, one reason for selling is given. The list goes on and on.

The reality is; you lose total control when you are dealing with more than one agent.

Your property will not be used as a springboard. It is common practice for agents to use higher priced open mandates to show to their buyers first, before showing their properly priced sole mandated properties, to make them look more attractive.

Remember, buyers buy by comparison.

No mandate, no motivation. Why would an agent spend all of his time, effort and money for no reward at the end of the day?

For me, networking is the best reason for giving a sole mandate. Because that sole agent will network your Big Bay, Atlantic Beach or Melkbosstrand property to other agencies and agents, and invite them to bring their qualified buyers to view your property. That sole agent will then split the commission respectively with those other agents.

Property Management Quotes/rates

Pretty much like buying something off a store, property management also has an array of prices imposed on them as you use their service. The prices though are not general. It varies in terms of service quality and its scope. A more established property management company, of course, imposes higher rates, while the not very exceptional ones or startups cannot really impose a rate as soaring. As to the scope, normally, a property manager takes care of the general and monotonous tasks, and depending on the agreement, can go beyond that. The common tasks assigned to a real estate manager that he can decide himself are advertisement, maintenances issues, invoice, getting the payments every month and receiving the concerns of tenants. Property owners always get their hands on screening tenants, property repairs, mortgage, loans and in the string of similar financial dealings – just about everything that includes financial decisions.

On the average, a real estate management quotes range from 3 percent to 10 percent gross rent collected every month. Before you a hire property manager, be sure to run a little background check and referrals. Ask people who they have worked before about their services and thoroughly assess them of services offered. Expenditures for repairs are added as agreed to the aforementioned percentage as soon as they are agreed upon by both parties. Put in mind that hiring a property manager does not mean total hands off of your property. It’s still your business after all and the finances are critical issues that may cause serious disputes if left unattended – be it paying tax, insurance, mortgage etc. You also have to account with the real estate manager regarding repairs. It will be a determinant of how much exactly to spend should there be damages that occur. Moreover, property owners might also want to do tenant screening themselves. This is to assure that they know of the quality of the people who are going to occupy their property, and are comfortable with them. This could take time, but it really is all up to you.

Perhaps the most difficult task of a property manager is when they get to deal with tenants. Invoices and similar sorts of paper works are arduous jobs that can be done by anyone. Dealing with people’s sour attitudes is what tests are property manager. Let’s face it, people can be quite difficult sometimes. However, you can’t wage conflicts against them either because they are the lifeblood of your business. You need someone to take care of this reputation if you think you don’t have the heart for it. It really takes some guts to stick to your guns when tenants are making you wave his late payment. If you tolerate his behavior and wave, then he has all the reason he needs to do it again. If you strictly assert your policy, you’d appear too stern and inconsiderate. If you have a real estate manager, he can always just say he’s doing his job, which he does. Nobody’s going to bother you at ridiculous hours for repairs, or when you’re spending quality time with family. Property managers can be expensive, but a quote of 3%-10% will you bring about priceless peace of mind.

Selling Property Privately

Selling Property Privately Can Be A Breeze

Selling property privately was never an easy thing to do. The fact that you are selling your own personal property without trying to be private can consume so much time and effort. Though it can be hard, if you did the right transactions and methods, it will be all worth it; but with the latest financial state and the decreasing numbers of potential buyers, as a home owner who wants to sell their own property, they must look at every single opportunity to have a competing chance against other home sellers.

House buyers now can com far between each other and will be very picky, even the interest rates are at an all time low state.

It is a must that we ensure our property in a way that it is ready to be sold. You should do everything to make your house look beautiful and flawless to the eye of the buyers. Your property needs to be tidy, well presented and clean. If you give it a fresh look by repainting the house to make it look brand new, it would be better. You must also invest money to renovate your home. Remember always that in this kind of industry, you must invest money to earn more money. It is also important that you price your property in a competitive way to sell your property privately. We can do this by looking up at local property agents or for sale by home owner websites so that you have an idea what is your house’s true market value. This is a good way to find out how similar the prices of the properties. You can also use websites that will allow you to just input your local post code and find a list of properties which are sold and their prices. This way you have an idea on how you can price your home.

If you are planning to hire a property agent, you should search for local property agents and see to it that you know what they can offer to you. You can inquire about how they will market your property and where would they advertise it if selling property yourself.

Selling Our Property Online

Selling Our Property Online Can Be Easy, Just Choose The Right Advertisement.

Selling our property online will require you to have a perfect well rounded campaign in advertising that can capture public attention as populous as possible. Unfortunately for this kind of field, the advertising budget will not compensate with all the needed amount of exposure in insuring the best results when it comes to auctions. In the field of advertisement, the most effective campaign in marketing something and introducing what is available for potential customers is the within the TV. Although it gives you the best results, it can also be very expensive. Therefore it will not be always a part of the strategy in maximizing the chances of interested people to inquire. Since the advertising in television is usually removed for this matter, all the other places that can lure potential customers or clients must be very well pursued. 

The first area of advertisement that can and sometimes, must be taken into account is print media. We should choose print media with ads in a national, local and even perhaps internationally released newspapers and magazines; well it all depends on the value of the property. Statistics show that a large number of properties are sold to people who live outside the country and failing to target these kinds of people will surely be fatal in having a great and successful auction. Another type of direct advertising is mailing a direct brochure to targeted people, this is also very important in having an auction. In this way, you are not only showing your property to that targeted individual, but in a way you are also showing them to the people who are affiliated with them. Another thing you could do is to post signs that are professionally made and place it strategically on general places of the vicinity. If you want to draw a bigger response or attention from potential customers and buyers, these signs should appear on roads that will carry a heavy traffic load.

As you can see, the next best thing in advertising through television is the radio. It is because people who are successful do not have any time to sit and read advertisements because they are busy and of course, when you say successful people, it means people who have the capacity to purchase a new land in a jiffy. The thing about successful people is that they do spend a lot of time with their cars or automobiles. In this case, they always listen to radio when they are doing morning drives or afternoon drives. So having one or two radio ads will provide you a bigger chance of grabbing their attention. By doing this, you can get a lot of people when we are selling our property online.

Last but certainly not the least among all the kinds of advertisement available in selling our property online is what we call the PIP. This stands for “Property Information Packet”. This includes a detailed description of the house, photographs, terms of the sale, home inspection information, financing availability, conveyance of title and purchase and sale agreement. House buyers also help homeowners who are thinking “selling our property for free” as we don’t take a single penny of you throughout the sales process.

Selling A Property Privately

How can you measure popularity? I mean, there are already a lot of actors and actresses out there in Hollywood. How would one know which actor or actress is the most well-known of them all? Well, in my opinion, is how much the public knows. Not in a stalker sort of way but how many people would know them. These people don’t necessarily have to love or like you for that matter. Some of them might even hate you but the main point is that they know your name and your attest escapades.

Life in the lime light isn’t always that good and it doesn’t work for some people or groups. For example, businesses would often prefer that they are not that open with their clients because it could be a source of espionage and could lead to the destruction or decline of their business. There are some things that could actually work best when kept private. If kept private, people could work with confidential matters and could ascertain things before it would be released. With this, one could be sure that the action would be a bit more reliable. 

These situations or circumstances would also apply in selling a property privately because the buyer would be assured that the property being sold to them has high quality. As we all know, this is not a common situation in the property selling industry. The property sellers, that we can usually notice, would want to advertise and get the word t as much people as possible. They would prefer to be popular and known too many because their belief is that the more people know about the properties you are selling, the more potential customers that will come your way. However, this strategy is for a certain type of market which is the middle class and the upper middle class. People who are in the high classes or have a high social status in the community would actually prefer on looking for the more private and pricey property sellers as they view them as having higher quality.

Because the rich prefer buying or selling a property privately, this type of strategy only reaches a certain number of customers: their own kind. Private selling of property caters people on the higher or “blessed” end of the social hierarchy. The properties that are usually for sale in this sector of the property selling industry are worth millions of pounds and have a number of “house accessories” that are included, i.e. outdoor swimming pools and located in a neighborhood where Hollywood stars live.

The current market situation is really not that good because we are still suffering from the aftermath of the recent global recession, selling a property for free is unheard of; house buyers don’t charge any fees whatsoever. Prices have gone off the charts and people had just started getting into the workforce again after being fired from work. In short, the economy and the people are still recovering from decline of the world economy. Businesses are crawling their way up. However, the rich people still have extra pounds to spend even if everybody else is still making a comeback. This is why that targeting this kind of market when buying or selling a property privately will best to gain profit during this difficult time.

Selling A Property Quickly

“nippy way to sell property quickly”

A number of business industries and sectors are barely operating because of the financial crisis that had just happened. Because of the recession, people are being let go from their jobs and prices are constantly increasing. Because of this, the unemployment had increased and people are severely suffering the decline of the economy. Some have even turned into the world of crimes; which also explains why crime rates have sky rocketed of the charts. People now are not willing to spend a few extra pounds on things that are not that needed; like try selling  a property quickly  for example, house buyers will buy your property quickly regardless of the condition.

The property industry is suffering from the aftermath of the recession. Property sellers are now having a hard time selling properties quickly that are on sale, selling a property quickly using house buyers is an easy solution. People who are selling their property will view the asset as a liability because they want to sell it as soon as they can. They will have to wait for a little more time for the liability to turn into profit now because of the current situation of the market. And this is quite a common setting all over the globe. Almost all of mankind is suffering from this tremendous out blow.

Because people are less willing to spend their money, property sellers are almost willing to do everything just to make a sale. They are willing to set prices low so that the property that they are still holding will be lessened. Before, properties may cost about £250,000. Now, sellers have lowered the prices to £100,000 just to attract customers. See the big difference? Sellers are willing to earn lower profits just to sell the properties at hand. This is how people are not willing to spend a few extra pounds to own a property.

Because selling a property quickly is a challenge to property sellers, they need to think of more ways in order for people to get attracted to what they are offering. They need to think a better way to package themselves and the properties so that buyers will come and look at the properties. Before, people are waiting for any opportunity to go their way. Now, it is the opportunity that is waiting for them.

As a property seller, you need to think outside the box and think more originally so that you could sell what you are offering more quickly. A common practice among property sellers is to make a list of all the properties that are for sale and circulating it to the public. The more the people know about your offerings, the more chances of you getting a customer to buy. Another thing that is practiced by sellers is by letting the public know how urgent selling they need to sell the property. They do this by lowering the prices after a certain period of time. Because of these small incremental changes in the price of the property, people will be attracted to buy your offer. With these practices, selling a property fast using house buyers will be possible.

Selling a property quickly is a struggle among property sellers nowadays, it’s like the survival of the fittest; whoever sells properties more, the longer their existence in the industry will be.
